The annual Auburn-Georgia rivalry could soon have a little familial spice in the not-too-distant future.
This past weekend, Tyler Fromm, a Class of 2019 recruit from Warner Robins, Ga., announced that he has committed to playing his college football for the University of Auburn. If the surname of the commit sounds familiar it should as Fromm’s older brother, Jake Fromm, is the starting quarterback at the University of Georgia.
And, for those of you who are curious, UGA was not one of the more than a dozen scholarship offers the tight end has received.

In addition to Auburn, Fromm held offers from Power Five programs such as Florida, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Purdue, South Carolina, USC, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. 247Sports.com currently has Fromm as a three-star prospect, rated as the No. 24 tight end in the country and the No. 54 player at any position in the state of Georgia.
Known as the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, Auburn and Georgia have played each other in football 122 times, including every year since the 1944 season. The teams first played during the 1892 season.
